This is harassment because you force me to use either
Xarchiver or Ark, you don't give me the choice to use none.
(Actually I wanted to install PeaZip which you don't provide
as a package, so why would I want to keep Xarchiver?)

All normal package managers would just remove everything
that depends on Xarchiver, not force me to install alternative.

You are a bunch of hypocrites and assholes, you are not
fighting for freedom, you just provide separate contrib and
non-free repositories just to make up illusion of fighting fighting
for freedom.

If you really fought for freedom, I would have a freedom to
just remove what I don't like (Xarchiver) and everything that
depends on it (as long as it's not an optional dependency).
